The Elixinol™ Story
Elixinol was founded by a group of passionate leaders, committed to increasing awareness of how people can live long, healthy lives, and reducing the amount of disease we see in our world today.
Since 1991, Elixinol Co-Founder Paul Benhaim has been a global leader in the industrial hemp industry. Over decades he has built deep relationships with the top hemp experts in the world. He is the founder of Hemp Foods Australia and has been cultivating and manufacturing hemp on a large scale around the world.
As scientific research continues to validate the powerful impact of CBD and other hemp-based cannabinoids on human health, people around the world have reached out to Paul for his expertise in developing CBD and other cannabinoid products.
Commitment to Excellence
As a pioneer in a fast-growing, worldwide industry Paul quickly identified the challenges that many CBD manufacturers were facing — while he also maintained his excitement about the potential to have a massive positive on global health. He noticed companies struggling with issues of consistency, quality control, education and overall business operations.
With a record of success in sourcing only the highest-quality hemp from select locations around the world, and proven expertise in product development, manufacturing and fulfillment, Paul realized he had an obligation to create a world-class organization devoted to excellence in the delivery of CBD and hemp oil.
Values and Integrity
Paul assembled a team of successful small-business owners in the health and wellness industry who shared a common vision of improving human health on a global scale. From the beginning, their commitment has been to staff Elixinol with people who are also committed to the vision of a world-class organization on every level.
This team clarified its vision to be the most respect cannabinoid product company in the world, and Elixinol was formed. Since then, the company has grown rapidly by attracting quality team members, business partners and passionate customers.
A key to Elixinol’s success is a unique business philosophy.
Higher Standards from the Beginning
Paul Benhaim learned in 1991 that hemp seed is a superior source of essential fatty acids. He has been working with hemp ever since.
Since his first product, the ‘9bar’ snack bar (still one of the world’s best-selling hemp products), Paul has developed numerous businesses, and supported government policies and global strategies to grow and develop the industrial hemp industry.
His obsession is to create the best organic hemp products for the mass market.
After learning about hemp seeds in 1991, Paul Benhaim immediately began tracking down the best hemp in the world.
He has worked in England, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Poland, Hungary, Korea, Thailand, India, China, Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand and more!
Paul has travelled the world for the last two decades, making close friends and colleagues in his chosen speciality — the highest-quality hemp on the planet!
Paul works with seed breeders and suppliers, growers, harvesters, cleaners, primary processors, manufacturers, laboratories and quality control personnel (in-house, contracted and third party) to source the highest-quality hemp from around the world for use in Elixinol products.
Before we ship from our manufacturing facility in Europe to the U.S., all of our products undergo rigorous testing. Then we use advanced HPLC (HPLC-DAD) equipment, in leading U.S. labs, to confirm the European results. Besides testing for potency, we also test for microbiological contamination, heavy metals, pesticides, and the unique terpene profile.
To establish the best labs for testing our products, we initially submit multiple samples of the same product, as well as “dummy” samples, to assure stability of the lab’s analysis methods and their ability to identify abnormalities in our products. This also allows us to be sure that they report any abnormalities to us immediately. Good communication and attention to detail is critical to the Elixinol process.
We employ these quality-control measures in every batch of Elixinol product we manufacture. There is never a question of what an individual is receiving when they make a purchase.
We use only hemp-based product testing laboratories that mirror pharmaceutical-industry processes and controls. Through these processes, they’ve solved the common problem of inconsistent test results. Our testing team comes from the pharmaceutical industry, understands the complexity of operating in a cGMP/GLP environment, and has operated in this environment for decades.
Complete Traceability and Transparency
Elixinol gives customers and partners greater peace of mind by providing batch and lot numbers for each product. We identify each batch of a product that we manufacture (GMP). This is essential in insuring consistent quality. We provide full transparency to our customers about what they are buying at any given point in time.
It also assures that should an issue arise, we can rapidly perform a recall on that specific batch and know exactly who may be in possession of a product derived from that batch. Lastly, it allows us to communicate clearly with our manufacturing partners so that we can identify any issues that may arise on the manufacturing side of our business.
Innovative Product Formulation
We work closely with a team of medical professionals to conduct intensive research and development on or formulations. Elixinol is proud to lead the industry when it comes to safety, product innovation and value for money. We are experts with decades of experience working with truly natural products. We know how to extract, process and formulate the ingredients we carefully select, without resorting to synthetic chemicals. And we maintain a strict policy of no GMO products whatsoever.
Our own in-house formulator develops and oversees the innovative methods we employ to make our products safe and enjoyable to use. We also continue to invest in our manufacturing facilities to expand the range of products we can make, without ever compromising on values.
These same values are applied when choosing ingredients for flavoring our edible products or developing non-toxic skin products. Our Cinnamint tincture, for example, uses a variety of cinnamon that is extracted using the same solvent-free Super Critical Fluid Extraction techniques used to extract our hemp plants. The result is record levels of cinnamaldehyde, a compound that offers more than just great natural flavor.
